Some younger members of the Alibi family have an interest in podcasting. Podcasting has offered them the opportunity to discuss movies, television, music, the supernatural and travel without the bother of typing it all out. And considering how fast the young seem to move these days, it really is better not to frustrate their communication efforts by introducing a keyboard.
Two of our cousins, Cherry, an Alibi family member who usually contributes to these podcasts, and Danielle who came in from out of town, sat down to discuss Series 3 of BBC’s Sherlock.
